Thanks TryHard, Does anyone know what to expect as far as how it drives. I hope the only difference is not just ease of maintanance.

As Spash said, the main advantage over the MS is the lower CoG, meaning that the car can be run softer, and hence generate a higher level of grip. This is apparently more noticeable on high grip tracks. At the US reedy race, the MS and MSX were run back to back, and the MSX was simply faster, because it could generate more grip. On lower bite tracks the difference is less noticeable, but still there. For example, Adam Rogers was running his car (an MS) with yellows all round, whilst David was using the HPI blues (which are apparently softer). Nothing too really call between them in terms of pace (Adam TQ, David 2nd... David then won both finals), but Davids looked more stable, and less on edge than Adams.

Of course the easier maintence is also a big bonus...

Cool, thanks for the info. It looks like the center shaft is a lttle diferent as well. It does not look like there are any e clips. Is that unique to the conversion or is that something that is out now.

I think that the E clips are still there. On Rick H's (which i assume is the pic your lokoing at) car, the end stoper is on the other way round to the standard position, doesn't make a difference, as it can be run either way.

On the spool front, just been looking over some pics again. Spotted this from Spashetts car at the euros. You can clearly see the steel outdrives on the Tamiya spool.

I can find the Yok parts as recomended from the TRF site, but not this Jurgen diff.

Can anyone direct me in the right direction.

Thanks
You have PM.

Thanks V12, I will wait and see what the one i got comes with. I ordered some front diff parts from yokomo so i will start with that.

One other rather obvious question I guess, but i read in here that the pinion pitch is different. Is there any conversion to standard 64P??

I use 64pitch gears in my 415. Go to www.gearchart.com for a list of ratios for the 415.

No, the kit spur is 0.4 metric not 64DP. Its similar to 64DP but not the same so makes noise when using 64DP pinions. But the Tamiya spurs are not good anyway its just best using a Xenon, Kawada or something similar.
Im using 72DP/48DP what is 96 in 64DP but 102 teeth will work also.

I do highly recommend RW spur gears, they're a little more pricey than others but because they're made of delrin they hold up very well, i've cracked several Xenon spurs though..

Regarding gears Im using the Xenon ones and I never had one break until now. But I have seen RWs breaking maybe because they are so thin. But I think there isnt any gear what would not break under certain conditions.

But both the RW and the Xenon are made of delrin, Xenon just dont want telling this. Difference is the Xenon is molded and the RW is machined.

first, thanks for all the answers, as always the rctech community is quick and helpful!

So who sells the Xenon??? i did a google search for "Xenon spur tamiya" and nothing came up....

What would be a good selection for stock/19t and mod racing.

Thanks

Andy
